10:01 am
stackable, he's going to tell us what we should and shouldn't be watching. >> we love our stackable. and the kids are back in school so we'll help make the learning more fun with new gadgets. >> who's hear what that? >> steve greenberg. all right. and if you want to be happy, we'll get advice for striking the right work/life balance in all kinds of situations from a mother of eight. she knows best. look at her she's juggling. >> she's on something. that's a joke and a poor one. says most of us are traveling this holiday sunday and monday. >> sometimes people take the extra day and return home on tuesday. >> oh, hoe the wants it. >> how could you not? >> only 16% of people are taking another day. >> so the traffic will be bad tonight, get an early start if you can. hoda, are you a party thrower or
10:02 am
goer? i'll tell you what that is, you're a goer. >> i'm an attend queee -- i'm n good at throwing parties. no one wants to come to my apartment. my mom and i when we were in rehoboth, i think for the first time we invited people over. >> i was stunned. we all were. and you had a ball. >> we made steaks! >> well, joel did. >> well, my mom did. but we had the woman who runs the fish shop and -- >> the coffee guy. >> everybody came from the grocery store. >> it was nice, right? >> but you throw -- not a good party you throw a great party. >> i love to host parties. frank and i through the years hosted hundreds of them. towards the end of his life we hosted less and less because he just wanted peace and quiet. it was so sweet. he'd sit in our backyard and watch the planes go by. there are three different airports that are -- we're sort
10:03 am
of the many t middle of and he would go with such contentment on his face, he'd go "there's another one i'm not on." he'd spend his whole life being on planes for football or the olympics or wide world of sports and he'd say "for every one of those there's a hotel on either end and another flight back." the older you get, you just -- you want to just sort of be wherure? well, if you are throwing a get together at your house there is an etiquette expert nameed william hanson who has some notes. let's see if you agree. they say don't -- some people ask everybody what's a good date for you, this friday, the next friday, the friday after. they say pick a date, throw the party -- >> and who court-martialan come. people will be like "i can come on tuesday but i can't come top 4:00." >> don't be vague about when the
10:04 am
party starts. >> it starts at noon! >> now when you say the party starts at noon, do you like people to show up at noon or are you okay with people showing up 1259:30 or 1:00? >> close. i've been in live television in my entire life. there's no such thing as late. vegas or whatever you have to be ready. you have to understand people -- if it's a picnic you're throwing you say we'll have picnic noon to five. but don't come more than 15 minutes late. it's really rude. >> don't ask guests to take off their shoes when they come to your house. >> you know, i don't that but a lot of people do do it. i'm used to that because of boats. people ask you to take your
10:05 am
shoes off when you're on a boat. >> what about in someone's home? >> if someone asks know do it i'm happy to oblige. it seems strange when you're dressed up in black tie and they say be barefoot in our evening gown. >> what if you have a bad pedicure or you don't the right socks. >> should have thought about that sooner, hoda. >> well, whatever. >> unless your house is very unique, do not offer a tour. i think if people ask you -- sometimes i'll say to a host "your house so pretty, this room i'm looking at, can i see some of it." >> but don't offer it. that's weird. >> have you ever been to someone's house where they offered? yes. >> i'm trying to think. >> i'm sure you have. >> but i love design and i love homes and i love to see the way people put things together so i would probably say "oh, could any" because i'm just interested in that. i don't throw it in my house anymore because it got so big
10:06 am
through. the 2-1 years we lived in that house so many additions and -- a tour like that smithsonian now. so many nooks and crannies. i have rooms i don't remember. >> this is a good one. when you get to a party and there's a big table they say that the host should assign seats so that -- when you say "sit wherever you want." everyone's like -- it feels weird, right? >> that i don't agree with. >> why? >> because people get crazy. i want to be seated next to so and so. and they feel like there's a better place to be and i won't be a part of that so i very rarely do it. i'll just say whoever get there is first, sit where you sit. frank sits here, i sit here, everybody else fill in. otherwise they're manipulating the evening and i don't like that. >> sometimes when people do sit you, they sit you next to someone who you don't know. they separate from your date or boyfriend or husband. >> is joel like that? >> joel can talk to anybody. >> i know he can.
10:07 am
so could frank but frank hated it when we were separated. he goes "why would they do that?" >> because you come to a party together. >> a lot of married people want to be separated. he hated it. i know i'm going home -- well, not anymore but i knew i was going home with him. >> if you are throwing a party -- and we are -- and you have wine glasses and you see people drink their wine and you don't want to keep replacing their glasses with fresh glasses -- >> you'll be washing dishes all night long: >> they give you these little pens. >> wine glass writer so you can write your name. >> washable nontoxic markers that write on the glass and bottles, too, so you can do this and nobody will pick up your glass of wine. >> kind of cool, right? >> yeah. and then you can also keep track of how many glasses you've had. >> by writing numbers, one, two, three, four. >> it's around $10 for a pack of
